40


A friend recently told me that 40 is a holy number, signifying the struggle between man and God. Think Noah on the ark, Jesus in the dessert, I'm sure there's more.

Above is my 40. 40 cards. 40 seedlings - collaged bits of green layered on loose watercolor sunrise.

The cards are for church, something to do with Easter and youth sunday. But the struggle was all mine.

That's truly beautiful! Are they hung separately on a wall... or is that an actual board/background behind the cards?

Thanks for your kind words guys.
